Five Question Friday

This week I'm participating in Five Question Friday hosted by My Little Life.  I always love to read other people's responses to the weekly 5 random questions, but rarely participate.  And by rarely, I mean once : ) 

Read on to learn a little more about me! 

1. Would you rather be on ABC's Extreme Home MakeOver or TLC's What not to Wear?

ABC's Extreme Home MakeOver by far! 

I actually have issues with TLC's What Not to Wear.  Don't get me wrong, the hosts do a great job of making over the person, but it's pretty unrealistic.  They make these people throw out all their comfortable, everyday clothes (and often... it really should be thrown out/donated, but not all of it always!) and replace it with super fashionable outfits that are so not everyday wear. 

I mean, I guess that's what Stacy London wears everyday, but not me.  And not anyone else I know.  Because a super cute outfit with heels and accessories and perfectly colored and coiffed hair and makeup isn't really realistic for everyday when you're going back and forth between cleaning and chasing a baby.  I'm not putting on heels just to strut around my house.  I digress. 

I would LOVE for Extreme Home Makeover to come and do my house.  Knock it down.  I don't care!  Heck, I'd be happy if someone would just come in and re-do our solitary bathroom.  But as the Husband and I were discussing last night, we're just not sad/sloppy/decrepit enough for anyone to care about redoing our house or bathroom.  He proposed maybe ripping out our toilet and pretending we don't have one and then  maybe someone would feel bad and come fix us.  But I don't see that happening. 

So, anyway... YES PLEASE makeover my house!  And although I'd love some new clothes, hair, and makeup I just don't think I'd ever choose a personal makeover over a whole house makeover! 

2. Do you have any tattoos?

I do not.  I have yet to find something that I want on my body permanently.  Although, I've been thinking about getting Mark's name in script on my neck.  Because script writing makes everything fancy!  Or maybe a portrait of Jack on my lower back?  I'm still thinking... ;)

3. Do you tell your kids about things you did growing up?

Thankfully, I haven't had to deal with this yet! 

I like to think that I'll be able to share some (some, being the operative word here :) ) of my life experiences with my kid(s) at age appropriate times and in age appropriate ways.  I would like them to know that I've faced similar situations and how I handled them and whether I have regrets and hopefully help them figure out how to navigate the same situations for themselves.  But, I don't really know how I'll feel about the whole thing when I actually have older children.  It's easy to say how you would like to handle it when you're on the outside looking in! 

4. If the traffic signal turns yellow, do you stop or speed up?

Speed up.  Definitely.  Gotta get through it before it turns red, right?  :P

5. What's your preference: chocolate or chips?

I guess I'd have to go with chips on this one.  I've always been more of a savory/salty kind of girl, but I do have to disclose that I developed a bit of a sweet tooth during pregnancy and it seems to have stuck around ::blushes:: I still get near nightly cravings for something sweet before bed.  At least I don't always indulge!


  1. I agree with you a 110% about your answer to #1! Thanks for sharing :)

  2. Hi Stephanie!

    I'm a new follower from 5QF. You make a good point about the WNTW program advocating the guests throw out all their comfy clothes. I much prefer wearing my comfy clothes at home - especially while doin housework!

    Have a great weekend!
